“Dear readers, ask yourselves, when has Washington told you anything that was not a lie? Washington’s lies have caused millions of casualties. Do you want to be a casualty of Washington’s lies?” Paul Craig Roberts
…by Jonas E. Alexis
Moses Hess, Karl Marx’s collaborator, postulated in the nineteenth century that the end of history will have to be understood in messianic and therefore historical terms.
Hess perceived that this will inevitably create serious conflict among those who do not accept messianic ideology which he himself was articulating in his book Rome and Jerusalem.
According to Hess, Jewish revolutionaries are supposed to break taboos and cross boundaries. As a corollary, those revolutionaries will continually strive to break open the abyss of anarchic revolution.
Hess even suggested that this revolution is “a special vocation,” and that revolutionaries like himself have carried this “messianic epoch of the world since the beginning of history.”
Hess, being a biological racialist and metaphysically and theologically anti-Semitic, declared that if a Jew does not follow that line of revolution, he is “a traitor to his race and his family.”
So, Hess’ formula is quite simple: to be a revolutionary Jew you have to go back to your roots; to go back to your roots you have to ally yourself with subversive movements; to ally yourself with subversive movements you have to go against the status quo; and going against the status quo will invariably mean attacking the moral and political order.
Attacking the moral order will inevitably create an existential struggle. In that struggle, argued Hess, the Jewish people will have to overcome their perceived enemies. Only then, Hess stated, will history come to fruition. And only then will the Jewish people dominate the entire world. Hess declared,
“[T]he chosen, holy people who hitherto have groaned under the oppressor’s heel, shall in their turn inherit dominion over the whole earth. This will be the culmination of history.”
Heinrich Graetz, one of the fathers of Jewish historiography, understood Hess’ ideology quite well. Graetz wrote Hess a letter in 1868, four years after Hess wrote Rome and Jerusalem, saying,
“I am looking forward with pleasure to flogging the Germans and their leaders—Schleirmacher, Fichte, and the whole wretched Romantic school.”
And then Graetz dropped the ideological bomb which lies at the heart of the historical conflict:
“We must above all work to shatter Christianity.”
Freud also understood that revolutionary ideology, and he saw Christianity—most specifically the Catholic Church—as his frontal enemy. Through sexual perversion, Freud thought that victory over Christianity was possible.
Wilhelm Reich, one of Freud’s devoted disciples, picked that subversive theme up and seduced priests and nuns.
Were Hess, Graetz, Freud, and Reich alive today, they probably would have greeted Jewish historian Yuri Slezkine of the University of California with a standing ovation for his study, The Jewish Century. Slezkine declares that
“Both Marxism and Freudianism were organized religions, with their own churches and sacred texts, and both Marx and Freud were true messiahs insofar as they stood outside time and could not be justified in terms of their teachings.”
We have argued in the past that Slezkine’s work is an interesting read. He opens the book with the thesis that
“The Modern Age is the Jewish Age, and the twentieth century in particular, is the Jewish Century.”
In that “Jewish Century,” wealth, learning and power are much more alluring and important than the lives of other people, particularly poor, defenseless and innocent people whose livelihood is at the mercy of the dreadful few. In that century, people begin to pursue
“wealth for the sake of learning, learning for the sake of wealth, and both wealth and learning for their own sake.”
In short, “Modernization,” argues Slezkine, “is about everyone becoming Jewish.”
Slezkine certainly has a point here, and politicians in Washington in particular are classic examples.
In 2012, Jewish thought-police Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic wrote an article entitled, “Barack Obama is Such a Traditional Jew Sometimes.”
Goldberg, who has been named “the most influential journalist/blogger on matters related to Israel,” declared during the same year,
“I handed him a copy of the New American Haggadah, the Passover user’s guide edited by Jonathan Safran Foer…
“When I handed him the Haggadah, President Obama, who famously stages his own seders at the White House, (which is a very nice philo-Semitic thing to do, IMHO) spent a moment leafing through it and making approving noises.
“Then he said (as I told the Times): ‘Does this mean we can’t use the Maxwell House Haggadah anymore?’”
“is the most Jewish president we’ve ever had (except for Rutherford B. Hayes).
“No president, not even Bill Clinton, has traveled so widely in Jewish circles, been taught by so many Jewish law professors, and had so many Jewish mentors, colleagues, and friends, and advisers as Barack Obama (though it is true that every so often he appoints a gentile to serve as White House chief of staff).”
In 2012, Obama had his own personal rabbi, Arnold Jacob Wolf. Peter Beinart declared that Jews in Chicago
“constituted a geographic and moral community, a community that bred in Obama a specific, and subversive, vision of American Jewish identity and of the Jewish state. And at the heart of it all was Arnold Jacob Wolf.”
Obama himself said during his college years, “On the law review, the black-Jewish alliance was intact. [They both] saw the world in pretty much the same way.”
But what Slezkine did not fully flesh out in the book is that in the “Jewish Century,” the Goyim—and here I mean those who are in power—have progressively lost their moral and intrinsic anchor and therefore have become apathetic towards crimes committed by the dreadful few.
The Goyim have been so brainwashed by the media and indeed other sophisticated means such as the “ministry of propaganda” (Hollywood) that sound and sober thinking and reflection on serious issues are brushed aside and ignored as if the answers to those issues do not really matter. Here are some classic examples.
Just a few days ago, the British newspaper the Guardian reported that “40,000 Iraqis stranded on mountain as ISIS jihadists threaten death.” Those Iraqis, many of them women and children,
“have been stranded on a mountain in the country’s north-west, facing slaughter at the hands of jihadists surrounding them below if they flee, or death by dehydration if they stay….
“At least 130,000 more people, many from the Yazidi stronghold of Sinjar, have fled to Dohuk, in the Kurdish north, or to Irbil, where regional authorities have been struggling since June to deal with one of the biggest and most rapid refugee movements in decades.
“Sinjar itself has been all but emptied of its 300,000 residents since jihadists stormed the city late on Saturday… ‘We are being told to convert or to lose our heads,’ said Khuldoon Atyas, who has stayed behind to guard his family’s crops. ‘There is no one coming to help.’
“Another man, who is hiding in the mountains and identified himself as Nafi’ee, said: ‘Food is low, ammunition is low, and so is water. We have one piece of bread to share between 10 people. We have to walk 2km to get water. There were some air strikes yesterday [against the jihadists], but they have made no difference.’
“At least 500 Yazidis, including 40 children, have been killed in the past week, local officials say. Many more have received direct threats, either from the advancing militants or members of nearby Sunni communities allied with them.”
“All 11-year-old Yasmin Al-Bakri remembers is that her mother was baking bread. Then she woke up in a hospital bed in Gaza to discover that both legs and her right arm were in bandages and she was suffering severe burns and fractures after her house was hit by an Israeli air strike. She also learned that she had lost most of her family.
“Yasmin survived, but figures issued on Wednesday by UNICEF, the U.N. children’s agency, showed that 419 Palestinian children have been killed in the nearly month-long Gaza war. That compares with 350 children who died in Israel’s three-week ground offensive in the enclave five years ago.”
The preliminary questions which ought to be answered quite accurately are these: just who is behind ISIS? And which country is supporting the terrorist group?
Before we answer this question, let us bring in Avner Cohen, one of Israel’s most erudite philosophers, historians and prodigious scholars, who is now Senior Fellow at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, and who has written two scholarly studies on Israel’s nuclear programs.
Cohen noted back in 2009 that “Hamas, to my regret, is Israel’s creation.” What, then, does that actually mean?
Well, Israel, as we have seen in the previous article, has expelled at least 700,000 Palestinians from their homes and has liquidated many of them in cold blood. Many of those who actually survived ended up in the concentration camp in the Gaza Strip.
Moreover, Israel’s extermination program has continued to this very day, placing Gazans on a daily diet without their consent. Hamas, then, has become a sort of defense mechanism. And Hamas, by deduction, is Israel’s creation.
If you still think that Cohen’s statement is not convincing, think about this for a moment. Israel has repeatedly said that Hamas is a terrorist organization.
But both the United States and Israel continue to support the Syrian rebels/terrorist, despite the fact that U.S. officials—from Hillary Clinton and John McCain to Obama—know pretty well that those terrorists have committed brutal acts, such as cutting out and eating the heart of a dead government soldier.
The Syrian rebels and ISIS are also two sides of the same coin. As has been indicated here at Veterans Today, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of ISIL, is Jewish and was trained by the Mossad. Paul Craig Roberts has recently stated that ISIS is “the creation of US meddling.”
This should not be a surprise at all, for Adam Gadahn (born Adam Pearlman) was also a Jewish terrorist pretending to be a Muslim. Moreover, the U.S. did train the Islamists who joined ISIS.
Now here are the million-dollar questions: who really benefits from terrorism? Can the Zionist regime really exist without it? The answer is a resounding no.
We have already seen how Daniel Pipes for example has postulated that the U.S. should support both Assad and the Syrian rebels/terrorists so that the war would go on forever.
And we have already seen that Bush supported and trained members of the terrorist organization MEK, which ended up assassinating Iranian scientists.
Recently, neocons such as Ari Fleischer, Frederick Kagan, Max Boot, Michael Rubin, have all applauded Obama for sending more troops in Iraq to fight ISIS, and they have already sent him a special message: “Don’t screw this up.”
Obama seemed to have responded affirmatively, saying that the strikes against ISIS will be “a long-term project.” Elliott Abrams is already excited about Obama’s move. He said:
“We’re not out of Iraq. The pledge [Obama] made [to leave Iraq] was premature—we’re back. Let’s now do the job, and not do two airstrikes when we really need to do five.”
So, the plot thickens: the Zionist regime and terrorism are two sides of the same coin. Should terrorism cease to exist, the political power of the regime will eventually crumble.
If you do not think that is possible, once again think for a moment. If the Zionist regime is really fighting against terrorism, shouldn’t they go after the Syrian rebels as well? Didn’t the rebels use chemical weapons and slaughter innocent civilians?
As it turns out, Washington supports terrorism because Washington is an accomplice. As Paul Craig Roberts succinctly puts it,
“Washington itself is the leading terrorist state. Therefore, it is illegal under US law for Washington to support itself. Washington, however, does not accept law, neither domestic nor international, as a constraint on its actions.
“Washington is ‘exceptional, indispensable.’ No one else counts. No law, no Constitution, and no humane consideration has authority to constrain Washington’s will.
“As horrific as Washington’s recklessness toward the Middle East is, Washington’s recklessness toward Russia is many orders of magnitude greater.”
If you think Roberts is exaggerating again, right after Obama vowed to attack ISIS, the same terrorist group went to Twitter to express their gratitude. They declared,
“This crisis will become a gift and you shall remember this: Our State will enter Irbil and America will fall, and then the Gulf will be ours. Your announcements do not scare us; the biggest enemy of the State is the Americans.”
Moreover, the Zionist regime continues to exist because it knows how to play the Jewish game. They can slaughter innocent civilians because, they tell us, those civilians are abetting terrorists.
But let us do some thought experiment here. Let us turn the table around. As Robert Bonomo and other observers such as Sami Jamil Jadallah have accurately pointed out, what if the Arabs slaughtered and exterminated at least 700,000 Jews in 1948? What if they sent Jews to the Gaza Strip and denied them basic needs such as food and water?
What if the Arabs imprison 1.8 million Jews “in a hundred square miles, which is about a third of the area of New York City, with no control borders, almost no access to the sea for fishermen, no real way in or out, and with drones buzzing overhead night and day”?
What if the Arabs destroyed over 10,000 Jewish homes in the Gaza Strip? What if they kept those Jews to a limit of 2,300 calories every day?
What if those Jews did not have access to books and libraries and thereofre could not expand and expound on their Talmud? What if they bombed Jews in Gaza and defended the act as “self-defense”? If Israel has the right to exist, do the people in Gaza have the right to exist?
What if the Red Cross declared that Gaza will take years to rebuild, since Israeli soldiers have literally reduced it to ashes?
What if we could give you the names of at least one thousand of the people who died in the recent carnage?
What if the Arabs, after destroying Jewish homes in Gaza, left “an overpowering stench” of feces all over the place?
What if they left their handwriting on the walls saying things like, “Fuck the Jews,” “Burn Gaza down,” “Good Jews = dead Jews”?
Yet the Israeli army, ladies and gentlemen, have said all those words to the Arabs after destroying their homes in the Gaza Strip.
What is so despicable and repugnant is that Seth Mandel of the neoconservative magazine Commentary has written an article entitled, “Israel’s Conduct in Gaza Is a Model for Other Nations.” And how does Mandel defend the recent carnage? Here is his response:
“In war, innocent people die. In war, victorious nations–even the most humane nations–make mistakes. Civilian casualties happen in every conflict; and in the history of war, atrocities by the victorious side are the norm.
“Of course they shouldn’t be excused; but neither should we judge wartime acts without any understanding of the circumstances of the time, at a safe distance, writing from a keyboard when the main hassle of the day is rush hour traffic. The morality of war is a terribly complicated matter to sort through.
“What is so unusual when it comes to Israel is that by historical standards it has conducted itself in its conflict with Hamas (to say nothing of past conflicts) with remarkable care and decency. I’m not sure there are many parallels to it.
“(America’s conduct in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has been similar, I think, to the care taken by Israel in Gaza.) Israel could have decimated Gaza and Hamas within hours, causing far more civilian deaths. It chose a far more humane, and historically rare, option.
“For much of the world and much of the Western media, then, to judge Israel harshly for how it’s acted in not only wrong; it is historically ignorant and morally obtuse.”
It gets worse. Right after the killing and chaos in Gaza, Michael Rubin of the same magazine wrote an article entitled, “No Donor Conference for Gaza.” Why?
Because “The Palestinians have received more per capita than any other national community, but have the least to show for it. The problem is not Israel, but rather an unwillingness to foreswear terrorism and concentrate instead on internal development.”
The Palestinians have received more per capita than any other national community?
Rubin must have been taking drugs because no sane person would utter such perversity. John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt write,
“The most obvious indicator of Israel’s favored position is the total amount of foreign aid it has received from America’s taxpayers. As of 2005, direct U.S. economic and military assistance to Israel amounted to nearly $154 billion (in 2005 dollars), the bulk of it comprising direct grants rather than loans.”
No country on earth has received that kind of financial aid. Rubin doesn’t want to lay out the fact because that would ruin his Zionist weltanschauung.
Leaving Rubin’s promiscuous and Talmudic cleverness aside, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz has recently put out an article saying that the Israeli
“cabinet is expected to declare the Gaza Strip as enemy territory. A senior Israeli official said the decision would mean that Israel would not be liable for damage incurred to residents of the Strip as a result of Israeli actions during Operation Protective Edge.”
More bad news. The Israeli soldiers literally “defecated in bins and cardboard boxes and urinated in water bottles” in a school for girls. They left several messages in English in that particular school saying things like, “You will be fu$ked here” and “Don’t forget it’s time for you to die.”
Hamas responded by saying, “Qassam’s army [Hamas’s militant wing] will crush you—dogs,” and “Israel will be defeated.”
What was more interesting was that during the same period, twitter was filled with words by young Israeli women pronouncing maledictions on the Arabs. Here are just a few:
“Death sentence for leftists & Arabs.”
“Death to these fu$king Arabs.”
“I wish a painful death to Arabs.”
“From the bottom of my heart, I wish for Arabs to be torched.”
“In the end there will be no more Arabs, God willing.”
“I spit on you, you stinking Arabs.”
“We wage war so this will be our land without any Arabs.”
“Hating Arabs isn’t racism it’s a commandment from God.”
“Arabs may you be paralyzed & die with great suffering.”
“Stinking Arabs, may you die, Amen.”
“Kill them already, Arabs are whores.”
“Arabs are not human, they are beasts.”
“Death to Arabs you son of a whore.”
“Kill Arab children so there won’t be a next generation.”
The Israeli hatred runs very deep. Here is just one video clip that was released in 2012:
Why should the United States use our tax dollars to support such hellish madness? If the Arabs dare to even approach those languages, would not organized Jewry publish them throughout their controlled media ad nauseam?
Didn’t they falsely propagate that Ahmadinejad wanted to “wipe Israel off the map” over and over? Weren’t puppets like Sarah Palin using this phrase to get elected?
If the Arabs were mad enough to even whisper the words that young Israelis pronounce in public, would not the United States begin to nuke the Middle East, as they did in Dresden? Would not they begin to rape virtually every woman and child, as the allied forces did to the German civilians after World War II?
As recent events begin to unfold, the entire world is rapidly seeing the true color of the dreadful few. They are not just committing murder on a massive scale; they have indirectly caused trouble in America as well. We have been told recently that at least 58,000 U.S. veterans are now homeless.
Michelle Obama said at the end of last month that those homeless veterans are a “strain on the soul of this nation.” She continued to say,
“As Americans, the idea that anyone who has worn our country’s uniform is sleeping on the ground should horrify us.”
Mrs. Obama gives the impression that she doesn’t know how those veterans got into this sinkhole. Who sent them to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Africa and colossal hoaxes to die for Israel? Who let them rot in the streets all across America? Mrs. Obama also said,
“As we all know, ending homelessness for our veterans can also be a crucial first step, a proof point to show that we can end homelessness for everyone in this country.”
We can help our first lady here: stop sending precious Americans in the Middle East to die for Israel; cut Israel’s funding and use it to support those veterans; and stop listening to AIPAC. Mrs. Obama also declared that helping those veterans is “critically important.”
If that is so, then critical and drastic actions are needed. If she wants to be serious, this problem can be solved practically within a few months—but not without a fight against the dreadful few, the enemies of all mankind, and destroyers of nations.
If you think that is too harsh, listen to the following stories very carefully. First, listen to Panayiota:
And then Jenny:
The Johnson Family:
And finally Michael:
There thousands of examples we could cite here. If those stories mean nothing to you or do no break your heart; if they do not move you to repudiate the Zionification of our precious men and women serving in the military who probably knew little of what is actually going on in the neoconservative world, then you need to stop reading subsequent articles. You are wasting your time.
But for those who want to understand the Zionist/neoconservative/Neo-Bolshevik disease which has infected some of our leading politicians, let us press on. We have one last sad story for you:
“On Mother’s Day 2010, Marine Sgt. Thomas Bagosy told his wife that he loved her and that he had completed his two purposes in life: He had served his country and helped bring their children into the world.
“The next day, after a battle with post-traumatic stress that spanned nearly half a decade, he put a .22 caliber pistol to his head and shot himself.
“His wife, Katie Bagosy, found out several hours later when a casualty notification officer from Camp Lejeune, N.C., pulled up to her door. In his hand: a gigantic three-ring binder with a fading American flag plastered from cover to binding and the ‘Widow’s Survival Handbook’ nestled within.
“He hands me this gigantic binder with ‘the days ahead’ written on the side,” Bagosy recalled. ‘It was too much to deal with.’”
Sgt. Bagosy was hardly the only one who tried to cope with the Zionist madness. “Nearly half of all respondents to a major survey of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans know at least one veteran from those conflicts who has tried to kill himself.” Last January, Stars and Stripes reported that
“The number of young veterans committing suicide jumped dramatically from 2009 to 2011… About 22 veterans a day take their own life, according to department estimates.
“But while older veterans saw a slight decrease in suicides, male veterans under 30 saw a 44 percent increase in the rate of suicides. That’s roughly two young veterans a day who take their own life, most just a few years after leaving the service.”
Last year, in order to exorcise their traumas they have seen in the military, many young veterans began to drink heavily and drive fast, which caused serious accidents and other disasters.
We must conclude with this thought: We are not against people, but we are against a powerful and diabolical ideology which has corrupted the minds of the dreadful few for centuries. As Israel Shamir rightly puts it,
“Christendom made a grave mistake by unilaterally abandoning ideological struggle against the Jewish paradigm. One should make a clear distinction between Jews as persons, and the Jewish paradigm as ideology.
“Jews are just human, and deserve to be treated and accepted as human. The Jewish paradigm should be confronted and counteracted.
“Two important issues were confused: the question of external relations, human and civil rights, human dignity on one side and ideological difference and variance, on the other. They can and should be treated separately.”
Once the dreadful few reject “the Judaic Cult of Death,” to use Shamir’s words, they will be no longer “the enemy of all mankind,” to use St. Paul’s words; they will become one of us.
For example, Mortimer Adler was perhaps one of the most thoughtful and seasoned philosophers of the least century, and he had no patience with nonsense. I still admire his writings and no-nonsense approach, and his book How to Read a Book has particularly helped me during my first year in college.
Shortly before he died, Adler embraced Christ fully (we kind of knew that it was coming), and his books certainly has been a blessing to many, including this writer.
The issue is not whether a person has a good or bad DNA in his system; the issue is whether one embraces the moral and political order. As Shamir again testified,
“I am daily grateful to Christ who saved me from the Judaic paranoia of hating and being hated and brought me into the world of loving and being loved… every Jew who has come to Christ by the way of rejecting the Judaic ideas, by upholding love for the nations, is a portent of Salvation.”
Finally, Shamir declared,
“When the Church is subjugated, Jews triumph and when Jews triumph, mankind suffers. The Jewish universe is good for Jews. It is a curse for the others. ..”
Those are harsh words indeed, but they must be taken from a theological and historical sense. They ought not to produce hatred or incite violence.
But if they are hard to swallow, think about the six-trillion dollar war; think about the many thousands of men and women who have already lost their precious lives for the wars in the Middle East and the Ukraine; and think about the thousands upon thousands of men and women who have been raped, maimed and handicapped because of those wars; think about Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo; and think about the recent carnage in Gaza.
Finally, think about what an international gallop has concluded, “The biggest threat to world peace is…America.” Paul Craig Roberts has recently come to similar conclusions, saying that “Washington threatens the world.” That would not have been possible had not the Zionist mafia taken over Washington.
And there is still redemption for Washington if U.S. officials start playing by the rules and if they start prosecuting the neoconservatives and those who “opened the gates of hell in Iraq.”
Stand firm and let Washington know that you are disappointed about what they did to our precious soldiers, precious lives in the Middle East, and your precious sons and daughters (who are much more important to you than Israel).
 If we follow that logic consistently, the writings of Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Rosa Luxemburg, Sam Harris, Peter Singer, Susan Jacoby, Jacques Derrida, Stanley Fish, Philip Roth, among others, have their intellectual roots in subversive movements.
